Is there a cable the can be used between my MacBook and TV. If I purchase a movie from ITunes etc.?
1. Which version of the MacBook do you have?
2. What type of inputs does your TV have?
Depending on those two questions, you will have your answer. Apple makes all sorts of adapters, but we can't say for sure which one you'd need without knowing some more information first.
My MacBook is the Blackbook from the previous release. About a year ago.

I just did this today.
Is your PC Video connection DVI or VGA?
ok i do this all the time with my tv and it works great. so you would need to get a mini dvi to dvi adapter from the apple store or best buy or somewhere and you would need a dvi cable to go from the adapter to the back of your tv. since dvi is only video (you might already know this) you need a 3.5mm stereo to rca cable for sound. and then go to the displays pane in system preferences and change anything for your tv that you would want to.
